3-200A What is 43º North?
3-300 This line is 180º from the Prime Meridian.
3-300A What is The International Date Line?
3-400 Traveling North along a line of longitude will make the North star do this.
3-400A What is get higher in the sky?
3-500 This is what happens to the width of lines of longitude as you move from the poles towards the equator.
3-500A What is increase in width?
This is the creator of time zones.

4-400 This is used to measure time zones.
4-400A What are lines of longitude?
4-500 You take a 4 hour flight from California to Connecticut that leaves at 5 am. This is the time that you arrive.
4-500A What is 12 noon or 12 pm?
This is equal on every point of a contour line.

5-400 This is what isotherms show.
5-400A What are points of equal temperature?
5-500 Letter “B” is found in the middle of these types of contour lines.
5-500A What are depression contours?
This is where you would look to see Polaris if you were on the equator.
6-100A What is on the horizon in the north?
6-200 This is the best description of earth shape.

6-400 This city hosted the Prime Meridian conference in 1884.
6-400A What is Washington, DC?
6-500 This was the primary cause for the creation of time zones.
6-500A What are railroad schedules?
You measure line “A – B” to be 3.4 cm. The temperature at point “A” is 8.2ºC. The temperature at point “B” is 21.7ºC. Calculate the gradient of line “A – B” if 1 cm is equal to 3 feet. Round you answer to the nearest hundredth.
